Though I was unaware of the Rosicrucian’s odd spiritual beliefs prior to visiting their Egyptian museum inSan Jose, they do have a very interesting museum boasting the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts on the west coast.

There were a few artifacts on display that actually support the fact that the Bible is a trustworthy source of historical information. Pictured in this post are artifacts related to characters and locations noted in the Bible.

This is a cast mold of the original huge stele of Assyrian King Esarhaddon. The Bible records King Esarhaddon multiple times; 2 Kings 19:37, Ezra 4:2, and Isaiah 37:38.


This cuneiform cylinder is also from King Nebuchadnezzar. Nebuchadnezzar is mentioned in the Biblical books of 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel.


This sculpture came from the ancient city of Nineveh. The city of Nineveh is mentioned over 25 times in the Bible, and proves to be one of many historical locations mentioned in the Bible. For example; Genesis 10:11, 2 Kings 19:36, Jonah 1:2, Nahum 1:8, Matthew 12:41, etc.

The largest cuneiform cylinder in this shot comes from the city of Ur. The city of Ur is mentioned in the Bible three times; Genesis 11:28, 11:31, & 15:7.

This is a cast of Assyrian King Sargon. Sargon is mentioned in Isaiah 20:1
